@Cryen This is an upstream bug, already reported here and here.

I've encountered this too. It basically means you don't have a correct loader (Android devices require a loader). Some loaders are provided in the project itself, but you can see in the second line it didn't find one. The most reliable way is to use a loader file from official recovery firmware - it should be named something like prog_firehose_ddr.elf and you can use --loader=filename argument.

@dreieck That's not right. edl is not using configparser so it cannot be an error from this package. But the exscript has such dependency. I can build this package without python-configparser even installed.

After the package is built (successfully) basically every time I try to use edl it fails the same way.

I just checked, I had an old version of python-configparser installed (from the out of date Artix "omniverse" repository), and that gave me build error

ERROR Missing dependencies:

Updating to python-configparser (from the AUR) 6.0.0 solved the build error for me.

So I suggest you add a versioned make dependency: python-configparser>=6.

I recognise that for some reasons "loaders" repository is downloaded both in source retrieval step and in prepare().

makepkg -do:

[↑ this actually creates lots of network traffic again]

Is it possible to make the download taking place only once, e.g. in prepare() using the stuff downloaded via the source array?

OK guys, I've added the python-exscript as a required dependency. I hope this resolve these issues all together.

Also the strip errors come from stripping process by makepkg. I don't see any mention in documentation how to disable it for some files. So it is what it is.

Hi @SelfRef, the issue is still present, and yes, I also tested with "makepkg -sC", after I ran into this with yay. The last two commits of this package are affected by this. But as I said, installing python-exscript and building again resolved it. The error message I got is the one @dreieck posted.

I also get an error about missing python-exscript:

==> Starting build()...

        The license_file parameter is deprecated, use license_files instead.

        By 2023-Oct-30, you need to update your project and remove deprecated calls
        or your builds will no longer be supported.

        See for details.

I was using makepkg -sfi, non-chroot build, but clean build directory.

namcap shows an Exscript related message in the built package as

edl-git W: Referenced python module 'Exscript.protocols.telnetlib.Telnet' is an uninstalled dependency (needed in files ['usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/edlclient/Tools/boottodwnload', 'usr/bin/', 'usr/bin/enableadb', 'usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/edlclient/Tools/enableadb', 'usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/edlclient/Tools/', 'usr/bin/boottodwnload'])

(together with some other python packages) -- interestingly also when python-exscript is installed.


SelfRef commented on 2023-09-22 09:09 (UTC)

@nilz3000 That's odd. python-exscript isn't necessary for build process. I cannot reproduce this. Have you tried clean build and using makepkg -s? If you still has this error please post it here.
